See if you qualify

If you drink alcohol, use drugs like opioids or cocaine, smoke cigarettes, or have never used any of these substances, you could qualify for a research study at the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), located in Baltimore.

To see if you qualify for one or more of our studies, click the "Schedule a Call" button below and schedule a screening call with a study specialist.

It’s important to note that any information you give to us is kept confidential and is protected by federal law.  


Enroll in a study

Participation in any study includes an in-person screening appointment. This appointment is the main step in determining eligibility. If you qualify for an in-person screening appointment, you will be scheduled to come to our Baltimore, Maryland location. All in-person screening appointments are considered a part of your participation, and you will be compensated for your time.

If you are eligible to participate, you will be informed and invited back to our Baltimore location.


Make an impact

Advances in medical science come through research. At NIDA, we have been able to learn about how drugs, alcohol, and nicotine affect the body and brain.

Before you join any study at NIDA, we will review details of study participation with you and answer any questions you have. If you join a study, you will need to follow instructions and undergo study procedures to the best of your ability while you are in the study.

Your participation in NIDA research is an important part of our combined mission to turn discovery into health.
